Theo Presents Cartoon-DVD-Review and GIVEAWAY
The animation series of Theo guides children and adults through a careful study of systematic theology. Theo discusses doctrines about sin, Godʼs character, the Bible, salvation and godly living with easy-to-understand illustrations that make children want to learn more about the Christian faith.
Theo Presents recognizes a universal fact: children and adults alike love cartoons. Theo captures the attention of young minds with liberal amounts of humor and high quality animation to present the Gospel of the Christian faith through the teachings of Theo and with the use of his two object lessons, Belfry and Luther.
Theo Presents is designed to serve as a multi-media resource tool that will help men, women and children fulfill the Great Commission of Christ, to go into all the world and make disciples and to teach those disciples Godʼs Word. The multi-media outlets include a DVD series, curriculum, books and audio CD series. Each of these facets are designed to work with one another or individually.
Theo was created to reach kids of all ages. The lessons and teachings of Theo can be used for Sunday school lessons, Christian school curriculum, missions, evangelism and homeschooling. The overall purpose of Theo Presents is to provide as many tools as possible to help present the Gospel to many kids and audiences around the world.
I was asked to review this wonderful DVD. It is of a man named Theo who loves the Lord and wants to teach children about the important things of the Lord. Theo Presents is a most lovable, interesting cartoon. Many cartoons are poorly put together and seem to lack imagination, but not Theo. This is a brilliant cartoon that is full of teachings and love of the Lord.
The one I reviewed is called Saving Faith and it is about 10 minutes long. It tells about the life of Abraham and how he had faith and always believed in God.
The creator has worked on many very famous, award-winning series and commercials, but always wanted to teach the word to children in cartoon form.
I know without a doubt this is going to be a very big, winning series. The cartoon I reviewed was intriguing, but very simple to understand and the characters so very special. Theo an Englishman and two cute mice.
This series is awesome and can’t wait to view the other ones when they come out. The titles below are the ones to come next.
Really highly recommend this DVD and besides being very entertaining, these DVDs are full of many lessons. These cartoons are for children of all ages. Don’t you love cartoons? You will love these.
1. Saving Faith
Did you know that the same type of faith that saved Abraham, saves you and me? Kids will be entranced by Theo, a kind English theologian who teaches what it means to have genuine, or saving faith. Theo shares the story of Abraham to illustrate the life of a man who trusted the promises of God and walked by faith. Just as the Lord promised Abraham a son and fulfilled His promise, He promised a Savior to us. And sent Jesus into the world at just the right time.
2. Loving Obedience
Loving God and obeying Him are two peas in the same pod! If we love God, we will obey Him. Luther and Belfry, two field mice that have befriended Theo, lack obedience and get into trouble wherever they go. Children will learn a valuable lesson and be entertained at the same time as Theo uses the story of Jonah to illustrate the consequences of disobedience, and the blessings that come when we love God through doing what He asks of us.
Nothing is more basic to the Gospel than forgiveness. Did you know that forgiveness in the biblical sense means to set something free? However, learning to forgive is not easy for Theo's furry friends Luther and Belfry. In this episode, Theo teaches the important lesson of forgiving others through the parable of the Unforgiving Servant. For if we do not forgive others, we cannot expect God to forgive us!
Whitestone Media is a Christ-centered, animation studio committed to creating quality Christian animation. Our mission is to teach children Godʼs word and how they ought to live in the light of it. Through our cartoons we hope to impact men, women, and children for Christ all over the world.
